WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) -
Tired of being deluged with TV commercials telling you that President Barack Obama or challenger Mitt Romney "approved this message?" The candidates will deliver their message for themselves Wednesday night in the first of three head-to-head presidential debates.

A. Ninety minutes. Each debate begins at 9 p.m. EDT and ends at 10:30 p.m.
Q. What is the format for Wednesday's debate?
A. There are no opening statements. The candidates will have two-minute closings. The domestic policy debate will be divided into six segments of approximately 15 minutes each. The moderator will open each segment with a question, and the candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment to hopefully facilitate a lively debate.
Q. What about the format for the remaining debates?
A. The vice presidential debate will cover both foreign and domestic topics and be divided into nine segments of approximately 10 minutes each. The moderator will ask an opening question, and each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a discussion.
The second presidential debate will be a town hall format. Audience members will ask questions on foreign and domestic topics. Candidates each will have two minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion.
The final presidential debate will follow the format of the first debate, except the focus will be on foreign policy.
Q. Who are the moderators?

Candy Crowley, chief political correspondent for CNN and "State of the Union" anchor will moderate the second presidential debate. The third presidential debate will be moderated by Bob Schieffer, chief Washington correspondent of CBS News and moderator of "Face the Nation."
Q. Who picks the specific topics for each segment?

Fahrenkopf, Jr., a former Republican National Committee chairman, and Michael McCurry, a former White House press secretary for Bill Clinton.
